Hit songwriter Hunter Phelps has renewed his global publishing deal with Tape Room Music and Warner Chappell Music. Warner Chappell Music has also acquired Phelps’ catalog.
The Florida native was first introduced to songwriting by his father, who owned a small recording studio, and had taught himself how to play guitar by the age of 12. While in college, he joined a a band and quickly gained a loyal following. Phelps moved to Nashville in 2012 to focus on songwriting. He has collaborated with top country artists including Hardy, Cole Swindell, Dierks Bentley, Jelly Roll, Ernest and more. He earned his first Songwriter of the Year and Song of the Year nominations at the 2023 ACM Awards for his work on “Wait In The Truck,” which also scored a Song of the Year nomination at the upcoming CMA Awards in November.
With over 455K monthly Spotify listeners, the CMA Triple Play Award winner also releases his own music. His work includes “My Kinda Livin'” with Hardy and Jameson Rodgers as well as “Throwin’ Parties” and “Breakup Sex.” Last year, he released his most recent single, “Bird Dog.”
“We could not be prouder of Hunter as he has grown into a true superstar songwriter. Because of his innate talent, the songs he writes always stand out on projects and playlists and become the music that artists and labels want to support. He is also one of the most sincere, appreciative, and hard-working humans working in country music, and we couldn’t be happier for him,” says Ben Vaughn, President & CEO, Warner Chappell Music Nashville.
Ashley Gorley, Tape Room Music Founder, adds “Getting to see Hunter develop from a new writer to one of the top writers in Nashville has been amazing to watch. I’m excited to continue this partnership and keep rockin!”
“The first nine years went so well, I figured we should add some more and keep it going. I’m just as excited to sign this deal as I was back in 2014. I love working with this crew, and I’m thankful to have them on my team. Everyone at Tape Room and Warner Chappell believed in me from the start, and I can’t to wait see what’s next,” says Phelps.
